Source for discontinued Armstrong ceiling tile?

Hi. I have an older Armstrong residential ceiling and I'm looking for a box of their Rockcastle tile, #945. Contacting Armstrong and a local distributor have it as a discontinued item. Anyone have a hint where I might find some NOS? Thanks for reading.

The answers you go should have given you a clue to what you need to do. If the tile was discontinued more than 2 years ago then you need to consider a new ceiling. If less than two years then you need contact the local distributor and make a deal with them first. The have them furnish all of the phone numbers and contact information to all of the other distributors in the country................... let your fingers do the walking. ............. Sure is not going to be easy..
I had the same problem with some tile that I bought. A couple of boxes were broken upon opening the boxes. I needed 12 pieces to finish. I got a hold of all the places that sold the tile and told them I would buy all that they had. I found 15 tiles in 3 places. One was a 4 hour drive from my home. Took me several weeks. I was considering starting over. Tile was not all that expensive in fact most stores sold it to me at less than I paid for it new.
Luck of the Irish to you

Thanks for the reply. I called quite a few local distributors w/o success. I was hoping maybe this was an issue someone else in a newsgroup had faced with better success than I. It wouldn't be the first time... Thanks again.
